The Apostles’ Creed: First Month—Day 10

The third day He rose from the dead.

Scripture

Since you have been raised with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on the things above, not on the things on the earth. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. (Colossians 3:1-4)
