The city of Ephesus was an important religious center in the ancient Roman world--which means the Christian church had an uphill battle if it wanted to survive here.
In his letter to the Christians in Ephesus, Paul wanted to remind the church what made it distinct from the worldly religions. He wanted the Christians to know how their lives were to be a shining example in the darkness that prevailed. And he wanted them to know how to stand against the attacks that would inevitably come.
