The natural man

1 Cor 2:13-16
These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy[a] Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For “who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?”[b] But we have the mind of Christ.

This verse shows me that as unbelievers, they have no capability to come to Christ because they find things of the Spirit of God as foolishness to them. So does that make the Holy Spirit the primary one who works in us while we do extremely little when it comes to our salvation?
