10 Transforming Bible Chapters to Read and Memorize

Are you wondering which chapters or passages in the Bible would be the best ones to memorize or study?  If I could pick ten, the list below are chapters that I believe are the most transforming and life altering in the spiritual growth for every follower of Christ.  

With the effort to study them or memorize them, you will broaden the language of the Holy Spirit speaking into the circumstances of your life.  Even as you go about your daily business, the words and phrases will bounce around in your head to remind you of how God is transforming your heart, soul, and mind. 
1.    Romans 12 – How to live, love, and relate with all types of people.
2.   James 1 – Perspective on trials and temptations; how to live your faith.
3.   1 Peter 1 – The value of trials, faith, living in holiness – why and how.
4.   1 Corinthians 13 – How to love and what it looks like in everyday life.
5.   1 John 1 – Walking in the Word and in the Light.
6.   Philippians 2:1-18 – Imitating Jesus – what He did and what we should do.
7.   Philippians 3:7-20 – Christ as our everything and our future hope.
8.   Ephesians 4 – How to live in unity with other believers and how we should live in relation with the rest of the world.
9.   Ephesians 6:1-18 – Why and how to submit in relationships; how to stand against evil.
10.  Galatians 6:1-10 – How to live life together, help each other, and encourage each other.
