Should you ask me what is the first thing in religion, I should reply that the first, second, and third thing therein is humility.
The death-side, if we may so speak, of a right posture before God, removes self from the shrine of worship, and prepares the heart to worship God alone. It gets into its rightful place under God, while the resurrection-side earnestly seeks and submits to God. The attitude of getting into our rightful place as worshippers can be simply termed humility.
