[B-Greek] Lists in the Pauline corpus

I have been thinking and wondering (as a newbie student) about the 
occurrances and possible significance of various "lists" of things in Paul's 
writings.  For example, Galatians - the works of the flesh and fruit of the 
spirit, or Ephesians - one Lord, one faith, one baptism; Philippians - 
whatever is true, noble, right; or in 2 Tim. 3 - men will be lovers of 
themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, etc.

The list in 2Tim 3:10,11 was also mentioned in a recent post.

My questions are essentially;

Are the forms of these lists common in Koine greek, or are they more 
specific to the Pauline corpus?  And what significance might we derive from 
their usage, if any?
