“By the strength of God” by Herman Ridderbos

“What the new man manifests in new life, what he works or exhibits in the fruit of the Spirit and good works, he works out of and by the strength of God, out of the power of the Spirit and by virtue of his belonging to Christ.”

–Herman Ridderbos, Paul: An Outline of His Theology, trans. John De Witt (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1975), 255.
