Conformed, Conformable

[ A-1,Verb,G4833, summorphizo ]
to make of like form with another person or thing, to render like" (sun, "with," morphe, "a form"), is found in Philippians 3:10 (in the Passive participle of the verb), "becoming conformed" (or "growing into conformity") to the death of Christ, indicating the practical apprehension of the death of the carnal self, and fulfilling his share of the sufferings following upon the sufferings of Christ. Some texts have the alternative verb summorphoo, which has practically the same meaning.

[ B-1,Adjective,G4832, summorphos ]
akin to A, signifies "having the same form as another, conformed to;"
(a) of the "conformity" of children of God "to the image of His Son," Romans 8:29;
(b), of their future physical "conformity" to His body of glory, Philippians 3:21. See FASHION.

[ B-2,Adjective,G4964, suschematizo ]
"to fashion or shape one thing like another," is translated "conformed" in Romans 12:2, AV; RV, "fashioned;" "fashioning" in 1 Peter 1:14. This verb has more especial reference to that which is transitory, changeable, unstable; summorphizo, to that which is essential in character and thus complete or durable, not merely a form or outline. Suschematizo could not be used of inward transformation. See FASHION (schema) and FORM (morphe).
