Christianity is not a religion of information but of transformation. The gospel begins as information but leads to transformation.
We need our whole lives to be converted and transformed. Transformation goes beyond a point-of-decision faith, where we "decide" one moment to accept the gift of salvation but then we live without the ongoing transformation that God calls us to. The example for this is Lydia. She was converted, and her life was changed. She led her household to faith, and opened her house for hospitality. Her home became a church.
Paul spends a great deal of time in Ephesians teaching the gospel and its implications. God has reconciled us, God has brought us together, God has acted for us. Therefore, Paul says, let us walk in a manner worthy of this calling by being united together in both doctrine and behavior. The goal is maturity.
