Am I Christomorphic ?

I learned a new "big word" today:  "Christomorphic." See Strawberry-Rhubarb Theology: The Christomorphic Life:
[Christ's] death becomes metaphorically paradigmatic for the obedience of the community . . . the fundamental norm of Pauline ethics is the christomorphic life.
                  --Richard Hays, The Moral Vision of the New Testament
                        (HarperOne, 1996), 46

Something to think about- and an insight into the meaning of this Scripture passage.
'. . . always carrying in the body the death of Jesus . . .' --2 Cor 4:10
