St Symeon Metaphrastis: Without God’s help...

Just as it is impossible for a person without eyes, tongue, ears and feet, to see, talk, hear or walk, so also it is impossible to commune in the divine mysteries, know God’s wisdom or be enriched by the Spirit, without God’s help and the energy He gives. 

The Greek sages were trained in the use of words and engaged spiritedly in verbal battles. The servants of God, even if they lack skill in argument, are familiar in every way with divine knowledge and God’s grace.
