First Fruits

The first fruit of Jesus' Ascension was the Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles. Imagine if Jesus had not ascended and the Holy Spirit had not come. We would not have personal contact with God was we do through our communication with the Holy Spirit Who is everywhere at all times. That first fruits had never ending effect. The Holy Spirit will be with us until the end of time. If you don't know the Spirit in your life, pray to do so. His presence is one fruit that you definitely want to taste!
