WORDS OF WISDOM John Chapter 3

(message bible version) 1-2 There was a man of the Pharisee sect, Nicodemus, a prominent leader among the Jews. Late one night he visited Jesus and said, “Rabbi, we all know you’re a teacher straight from God. No one could do all the God-pointing, God-revealing acts you do if God weren’t in on it.”

3Jesus said, “You’re absolutely right. Take it from me: Unless a person is born from above, it’s not possible to see what I’m pointing to-to God’s kingdom.”

4“How can anyone,” said Nicodemus, “be born who has already been born and grown up? You can’t re-enter your mother’s womb and be born again. What are you saying with this ‘born-from-above’ talk?”

5-6Jesus said, “You’re not listening. Let me say it again. Unless a person submits to this original creation-the ‘wind-hovering-over-the-water’ creation, the invisible moving the visible, a baptism into a new life-it’s not possible to enter God’s kingdom. When you look at a baby, it’s just that: a body you can look at and touch. But the person who takes shape within is formed by something you can’t see and touch-the Spirit-and becomes a living spirit.

7-8“So don’t be so surprised when I tell you that you have to be ‘born from above’-out of this world, so to speak.

I talk about taking a group of teenagers up to Tacoma for a Christian Rock Concert. The group playing was the Darrell Mansfield Band.


Our experience was pretty wild, you have to listen. We popped in a cassette tape of Twisted Sister and jammed all the way up to Tacoma in our van rented from Whitney’s in Montesano.

I play some clips from Darrell Mansfield and talk about the impact he and his band had on my life. God got my attention. I thought church was boring and dull, until I heard Darrell and his band.


Darrell talked about what Heaven and Hell were like according to the Bible. He talked about one of my favorite artists, Ronnie James Dio and how he really wasn’t an authority on what hell was really like. I sat there stunned, cause he wasn’t ranking on anyone, he was just telling the truth.


He shared about his life and how he had given himself to God. It was amazing. My heart beat like it was coming out of my chest! Geez! It was very amazing.

Finally I play a song by Darrell called “He has overcome.” After that I talk about how it impacted my life.

I think God is closer to all of us than we think he is. He is waiting for us to acknowlege him.

Next week I talk about what happened on the ride home in the van. The kids I had taken to the concert had a lot to talk about, as well as I did. My life had been changed and so had a bunch of theirs. I call it “We’re not gonna take it” aka “The ride home.”

I wrap up the podcast with a quick prayer for you and a couple of promos for my friend Kenny and Jen’s podcast.

I hope you have been enjoying Take Him With You, please email me comments, audio or emails to I would love to play them on the show and get your feedback. We are attempting to podcast full time and support our family. So sign up for the newsletter and drop us bit of moola to keep it coming each week to you! Our goal is to encourage you!

TELL A FRIEND! Get them to listen, remember the philosophy of Take Him With You is that ANYONE, religious or not, can download the podcast and take it with them! People who don’t go to church can relate and be encouraged. And that is the goal. To talk about spiritual stuff without being stuffy and religious! Woo hoo!
