What If Jesus Played The Guitar?

Today, my acoustic guitar sits languishing in my closet while my beloved Stratocaster has been stolen for years (from church of all places). I used to love playing guitar and reading reviews on The Sound Junky.

But there was a time when not a day passed by in which I didn’t spend hours playing the guitar convinced that given enough time and practice I could become God’s gift to the guitar.

Shockingly, that didn’t work out so well. But that doesn’t mean it won’t work out for you so if you’ve always wanted to take up playing the guitar or even if you need a new hobby, Google “guitar lessons near me Omaha NE” and see what comes up. You’ll be able to start learning and probably end up much better than me!

But the memories came flooding back today when I stumbled upon a picture that imagined what it would be like if God’s gift to humanity was also God’s gift to the guitar.

I have to admit, it made be smile.


Of course, such as the internet is, this wasn’t the only picture that imagined our Lord and Savior as a rock god (or would it be the rock God?).

It wasn’t long before I found a guitar strumming Jesus that made me smile even more.

And I figured that was it.

Amusing pictures of Jesus playing the guitar. Funny, but admittedly not much more than grin inducing.

But then I came across the pièce de résistance.

A gif of Jesus not just playing the guitar, but rocking out for all of creation.

And then my day was made just as it was getting started.

So, go ahead. Look at it and try not to laugh.

You can’t do it.
