What He meant is that true worshipers should be spirit filled and be obeying the truth, the gospel, what he told Nicodemus (John 3) and what Peter the apostle preached the day of Pentecost Acts2:38 (the birthday of the NT church). Jesus told Nicodemus that he needed to be born of the water and spirit to see or enter the kingdom of God, then he told Peter "thou art Peter and upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it and whatsoever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatsoever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven" Peters word were binding! On the day of Pentecost he preached Jesus' death, burial and resurrection, the people who were listening got convicted and said "men and brethren what shall we do?" Peter said 'repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive he gift of the Holy Ghost.
