That’s right! The unsaved know better than to look for Jesus among the dead. I say that because I want to ask you this: When the unsaved want to find Jesus, do they go to you or do they avoid you?
Assuming you are a Christian, how deep is your Christian faith and commitment? This will determine whether you are among the living or among the dead. If you are living, people will seek Jesus where you are. If you are dead, they will have no reason to look for Jesus there.
