16 Bible Verse That All Followers of Christ Need To Memorize

"But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called "Today," so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness."

143

Memorizing verses can be difficult. You have to set aside time to go over the verses, and you have to really commit.
But memorizing verses is worth the effort. When you memorize verses, it is easier to spread God's word, because you have the gospel and His truth readily available to give to someone. Memorizing verses also helps you to stand against the temptations of sin, because you can recite God's truth to yourself. You can also encourage others with verses you have memorized.

Below are 16 verses I think every Christian should memorize. They can be used for encouragement, edification and/ or spreading the gospel.

1. Romans 6:23
