“What makes the Christian a strong and genuine human is according to Eph. 3:16-19 not a noble capability implanted in him (or her) at the first creation and surviving the lapse into sin, but the ongoing visitation and strengthening by God. When God’s Spirit supplies strength–and when man or woman grows toward the Messiah who is their very life–then they will live as true human.” Markus Barth, Ephesians 1-3.
