Philippians 3:10a ... "That I may know (have intimacy with) Him and the power of His resurrection"...
We want the power of His resurrection. We have the legal right in the New Covenant to have the power of His resurrection operating through us. If we don't have this happening in us ... what's the reason that we don't?
One reason that we don't is because we've hit a plateau and we're happy to stay there. God isn't happy with plateaus ... He wants us climbing that mountain, climbing that hill. I'm talking about the slope to get up there where God wants us.
Philippians 3:10b - 12a ... "being made conformable unto His death, if by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. Not that I had already attained (I'm not there yet), either were already perfect."
We are perfect in our spirit man, but not in our soulish realm. We have a lot of growing up to do in this realm. We have to keep these two separate and realize the separateness of them.
