Because your hand has not let go!
You yourself are still taking care of your affairs; therefore you cannot say with conviction, I have been crucified with Christ; neither can you say, It is no longer I that live, but Christ liveth in me.
DEATH MEANS letting go, putting hands off, no more care, and no longer control.
ONLY WHEN it becomes impossible to you does it begin to be possible with God.
SO THAT the first important step is for you to take your hands off.
Yes Yes Yes!!! Take Your Hands Off!
