Bible Game: What Comes Next? (Imagination Game)
God gave people imaginations to help them believe. Picturing angels and Jesus and the heavenlies in our minds makes them more real to us, and it helps us look forward to eternal life. This Bible game will help get students motivated to use their imaginations in the relaxing days of summer.
Students will race to come up with a story using nothing but their imaginations.
Summer vacation is a time for rest but it is also a time to have some fun! It’s a great time to build our imaginations, which help us to picture Jesus and his angels! Let’s see how far we can spread our imaginations with the help of just a couple help aids!
• Two pieces of paper (8.5 by 11)
• Two writing utensils
• Two wooden crosses
• Two pieces of bread
• Two signs of the fish
1. If possible, divide class into two teams.
2. Give a student from each team a piece of paper and a writing utensil.
3. Have both teams sit in circles.
4. Place one cross, one piece of bread, and one sign of the fish in the center of each circle.
5. Explain to the students that the three items are Christian symbols.
6. When you say “Imagine!” the first student will start writing a story that involves the three items in the center of the circle.
7. After thirty-five seconds, say “The imagination moves on!” and the student writing will pass the paper and writing utensil to the student to the right of them.
8. That student will continue the story from where the last student left off, after thirty-five seconds repeat step 6.
9. Repeat steps 6 and 7 until all of the students have had a chance to write.
10.If desirable, have a student from each team read their story out loud.
11.You and the students vote on which story was most imaginative.
Imagination is one of the gifts God gives us to help us look forward to heaven. The Bible says: “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:18) It’s fun to develop our imaginations, and summer is just the time to do it! We have time to build dreams and use them to know God better.
