In rural Australia - in fact, right across Australia - we are very keen on "identity" - who we are, what drives us, where we are going, where we fit in life. God is pretty keen on identity too - and Paul writes Ephesians with that in mind. As we move through Ephesians, God lovingly draws us back to know the confidence of who we are as his people, in this world, moved by his purposes.
