The first three chapters of Ephesians explain who we are in Christ. The last three chapters of Ephesians explain our responsibilities as Christians.
Eph.1:3 explains that the spiritual blessings are available to every Christian. Verses 4-7, 9, 14 and 13 define those blessings.
2Tim.1:9 tells us that our position in Christ is not dependent upon our performance/works, but is the product of our faith in the work of Christ in us.
Praying Eph.3:20 is how we walk worthy of our position in Christ.
