But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. (1 Corinthians 15:20)
Only after the husbandman takes the ripe vegetation in his hands and tastes it does he call for the reapers to come and harvest the crops. Similarly, Christ’s resurrection was the result of His own power, and He tasted its firstfruits. We too as the redeemed of the Lord will taste of Christ’s resurrection. For us it won’t be just a spiritual resurrection but a physical one. Our mortal bodies will be redressed in immortality. Our corruption will put on Christ’s incorruption, and we shall be just like Him.
