It's very helpful to have a study Bible. I use two different ones, both written by John MacArthur, whom I quote here: "Firstfruits symbolized the consecration of the whole harvest to God and was a pledge of the whole harvest to come." "It involved presenting to the Lord a sheaf of barley, accompanied by burnt, grain and drink offerings. See Romans 8:19 for its application to believers in the church age: "...we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit...eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body." In other words, the fruit which the Spirit produces in us now provides hope that we will one day be like Christ, that we will be glorified and realize our inheritance in the kingdom to come.
