Steve Espamer shares his incredible testimony of grace that magnifies God's ability to reach, restore and redeem. You wouldn't believe the stories he shares of how God rescued him from a life of drugs, abuse and time spent in jail and is now using him to advance His kingdom in powerful ways. Listen now to the latest episode of Presence, Power and Glory with Jeff Struss on the Charisma Podcast Network.

Espamer shares of his time in the '60s when, after spending time in jail for the second time, he came home. "Three of my friends that I used to do drugs with walked up to me and said, 'Hey, Stevie, how you doing? We're saved. And we found Jesus. We're saved,'" he said.

Espamer recalls how stunned he was when the former notorious drug addict and rock-n-roll guitar star in his town came up to him and said, "Stevie, Jesus loves you; stop over anytime."

This invitation ultimately led to the saving of not only Espamer's physical life, but his spiritual one as well. Espamer says he believes "the presence of God just came upon me." What led to Espamer's radical encounter with the Lord's presence? Listen to the full podcast here to find out.
