The Holy Spirit is the Down-payment on our Resurrection

harvest

James Dunn comments on Romans 8:23,

“The Spirit is himself the aparchē [firstfruits] not just the foreshadowing of it but the beginning of it – the beginnings of a harvest whose reaping proceeds slowly but surely until the final ingathering and rejoicing.”

Dunn, J. D. G. (2011-08-22). Baptism in the Holy Spirit (Kindle Locations 3312-3314).
