Second Reading:  Colossians 3:1-4

A reading from Paul’s letter to the Colossians.

Since you’ve been resurrected with Christ, set your heart on what pertains to higher realms, where Christ is seated at God’s right hand. Let your thoughts be on heavenly things, not on the things of earth. After all, you died, and now your life is hidden with Christ in God. But when Christ—who is your life—is revealed, you too will be revealed with Christ in glory.

The Word of God recorded in Paul’s letter to the Colossians.
