We are in the land of the living, because we have Jesus.
Because Jesus has us.
He is the Way, the Truth, and most importantly of all--the Life!
He is our Life, and we can take Jesus up on His promise, that He wants us to have life, and that more abundantly (JOhn 10: 10)
Where did anyone get the idea that our Lord and Savior wanted us to be miserable?
We walk in Him, in His Spirit, and we overcome the flesh (Galatians 5:16) because we have ceased from our own works (Hebrews 4: 10)
Let's enjoy His rest! Let us walk with the Lord Jesus, identifying with Him (1 John 4: 17) and abide in the Land of the Living!
