Activity – Immeasurably More

An Activity

You will need a sheet of paper, coloured pens, a glue stick and a pair of scissors.folded paper

Cut the paper in half longways, then cut each of those in half again to make 4 long strips and each of those in half again to make 8 long thin strips.

Using the coloured pens, write the following words on the strips, making them fill the whole strip if possible. If you like, you can decorate any spaces with short lines to make it look like a tape measure.

  • immeasurably
  • I pray that you may grasp
  • is the love of Christ
  • more than
  • how wide and long
  • who is able to do
  • all we ask or imagine.
  • and high and deep

Alternatively, you can print out the immeasurably more PDF (click here) and cut it up.

When you have your strips, arrange them in order and glue them end-to-end in to one long measure and then roll it up, starting with the word ‘imagine’. The correct order is: I pray that you may grasp / how wide and long / and high and deep / is the love of Christ / who is able to do / immeasurably / more than / all we ask or imagine. (From Eph 3:17-20)

Take your measure in your hands and imagine Jesus talking to you as he did to blind Bartimaeus. What is the one thing is that you would ask Jesus for? Unroll your measure and read the words.
