Consider reading the chapter in several translations and choosing a few verses to memorize. This week was jam packed with great verses, so I chose a bunch:
Luke 9:13 NRSV
Jesus said to them, “You give them something to eat.”

Luke 9:20 NRSV
Jesus said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
Peter answered, “The Messiah of God.”

Luke 9:23-26 NRSV
Then Jesus said to them all, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will save it. What does it profit them if they gain the whole world, but lose or forfeit themselves? Those who are ashamed of me and of my words, of them the Son of Man will be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.”

Luke 9:35 NRSV
Then from the cloud came a voice that said, “This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!”

Luke 9:50 NRSV
But Jesus said to him, “Do not stop him; for whoever is not against you is for you.”

Luke 9:62 NRSV
Jesus said to him, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”
