LISTEN – Free Music –
July 22, 2020 – “Seventeen years of sobriety happened because I took one step towards God that night in going to that Bible study,” Mattson said. “What I really want the listener to know is that the grace of God is so big that no matter how ridiculous your first step or whatever step you’re about to take towards God is, He meets us right there.”
Mattson explained that after he attended the Bible study that night, he got high, and thus some, when hearing his story may not understand the significance of that first step.
But although the step may seem small, even insignificant, Mattson said it was that active choice, to sacrifice even part of one day to work toward sobriety, that generated a series of events now leading to 17 years of sobriety, and the opportunity to minister directly to the community he was once a part of, through music.
