Philippians 3:9-11And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the  righteousness which is of God by faith: 10  That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11  If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

The word "conformable" here is the Greek word "summorphizo" and it means to be made like unto. Paul is saying that he wants to live by the the power of the cross, conforming to Christ's suffering so that he might attain to Christ's resurrection.

Galatians 5:25 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its affections and lusts.
