The integrity of your own mind, soul, and conscience is sacred just as your right vertical relationship is.
Your obedience in sharing Christ's Gospel just to please God the Father is also that way. And witnessing in faith for His glory, this intentional world changing, this sharing your faith.. it's just way better when the believer has godly character, sincerity, and integrity. It's God's will that every born again believer have such. But living in God's righteousness comes before and includes ministering in His righteousness. Importing and maintaining what you've gained via faith in Jesus before exporting your faith to others is imperative. Nails it!

"Did he not himself say to me, 'She is my sister'? And she herself said, 'He is my brother.' In the integrity of my heart and the innocence of my hands I have done this.

Genesis 20:5-6
"I will sing of steadfast love and justice; to you, O Lord, I will make music. I will ponder the way that is blameless. Oh when will you come to me? Will walk with integrity of heart within my house.." Psalm 101:1-2
"Whoever walks in integrity will be delivered, but he who is crooked in his ways will suddenly fall." Proverbs 28:18
"And the Lord said to Satan, 'Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil? He still holds fast his integrity, although you incited me against him to destroy him without reason.'" Job 2:3
