John 4:23—“when true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth . . .”
When we live as a worshipper on earth our words and actions must be pleasing to God. We cannot act one way when we are alone with God and another way when we are out in public. Our outward and inward lives must match. Our behavior before God and man must be consistent and this is only possible if we rely solely on the power of the Holy Spirit to transform us.
The sinful nature rebels against an inward life and outward life that are consistent. The evil one increases temptations to try and make us look like hypocrites. The last thing the prince of this world needs is faithful men and women manifesting the truth and grace of God on earth.
When believers behave outwardly on earth as they behave spiritually in heaven, then Satan is thwarted. The Holy Spirit is so strong in a consistent life that the enemy has no foothold and is soon vanquished. Pray the Spirit will be the binding force that keeps your physical life and spiritual life one.
