Feast of Firstfruits (Lev. 23:10): “But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep” (1 Cor. 15:20). In the Father’s eyes, Jesus is the first among His brothers and sisters (which is His Church, saved and adopted by His blood) to be resurrected into life. Those who believe in Him will be resurrected with Him (1 Cor. 15:51–52).
Application: We need to put Jesus and serving God first in our lives. All other preoccupations should come next; otherwise, they will take the place of God and become our idols.
