Every month as part of our ongoing ministry, we publish a Scripture list. This particular list is situated all around the idea of change and how God leads us and transforms us.

As followers of Jesus, we are disciples, our life is to follow Him. This particular list has been crafted by me and is truly one of my most favorite lists ever!

I put together a video so you could read all the Bible verses for transformation in one setting, the video is about five minutes and is worth the time.

Think of it as a time set apart with God, a prayer practice. I really believe that God’s hand is on the orchestrating of this Scripture and I hope that you are encouraged through God’s word in this video. I also have all the Scripture individually below.

We also have a great set of prayers for change to help you bring whatever you are working on to the Lord and rely on His strength, guidance, and love. Read Prayers for Change.

The purpose of this list is to read these Bible verses for transformation all together in order.

They are crafted together to read like one large paragraph. There is a great impact when you read them all in one sitting.

So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants.
