It Is A Gospel Of Power That Will Change The World

No Meme, Post, Lyric, Or Teaching Will Change A Destiny.

If we believe a Gospel of words will change our culture, we are misguided. It is a Gospel of power that changes lives. Lives changed by the power of God, in turn, create a culture that has the power to change culture.


Words convey powerful ideas, but no meme, post, lyric, or teaching will change a destiny. It is the Spirit’s power working through words, or perhaps more accurately, words formed by and articulating the leading Gospel of power, that will bring transformation.

God’s power is most profoundly expressed through His all-surpassing Love. Every sign and wonder God gives, every renewing experience of grace and forgiveness, is powered by God’s heart for humankind.

If we want a Gospel of power, we must first welcome the Gospel of Love to overtake our own hearts. Having tasted the healing and restoring gift of God’s Love, we are then empowered to embody that same Love to the world around us.

In this we see that power only finds its healthy foundation in Love. Power, uprooted from a loved heart that loves in return, will corrupt everything it touches – including the one that holds it.

A Gospel of power, motivated by love and flowing from loved hearts, will manifest itself in miracles that change the heart, heal the body, restore the mind, free the emotions, and alter the systems of this world.

It is a Gospel of power, rooted and established in a Jesus-vision of Love, that will change the world.

Matt Bramstedt | Dan Wilt – “The Song Inside Of Me” (Lyric Video + Song Story)

And my heart beats like a drum, You are the song inside of me.

The song that moves you from the middle of the hard night to the beginning of a bright day is rarely one that is perfect, polished, or presented with a bow. It’s usually the one that’s honest, full of passion, and helps you say something that is true and right. That’s the power of of spiritual resolve – choosing to declare Kingdom truth until our feelings learn to follow. The Song Inside Of Me is a new song of celebration and resolve for the Body of Christ.


The Song Inside Of Me

[key of B, A, or G, chart download at bottom]

I’ve got to sing, I’ve got to sing out
I’ve got to shout, I’ve got to shout out
The One and Only, the King of Glory
You are the Song inside of me

You are the joy that I’m declaring
Releasing hope for all to carry
God, You’re alive, reclaiming lives
You are the Song inside of me

| Prechorus |

And I will sing, a song to bless Your Name
Shout it out, proclaiming Christ who reigns
To our God, You are the risen King
You are the Song inside of me

| Chorus |

And I will sing, like the sun
Shout it out, You’re the worthy One
And my heart beats like a drum
You are the Song inside of me


Kat Michael | Dan Wilt – “I Am Your Child” (Official Lyric Video + Song Story)

I am not bound by worry, I am not bound by fear.

Is God really good, and is His heart loving toward you? This is a time when a revelation of the goodness of the Father is being poured out on the Body of Christ. Affirming who the Father is, and then receiving His love for us, gives us strength through the struggles of life. This song of celebration was written to remind us, and our communities, what it means to be the pursued – the beloved – of the Father.

I Am Your Child

I Am Your Child
Kat Michael | Dan Wilt

I am not bound by worry,
I am not bound by fear
I know Your promises for me,
I know that You are near

I have a seat at Your table,
You always welcome me
The feast of Your love sustains me,
And the sound of Your joy gives me wings

| Chorus |

I am Your child,
A chosen one
You delight in me, and You sing over me
Your song

| Bridge |

I will fix my eyes on You,
I’m undone by Your great love
I will fix my eyes on You,
I’ll remember all that You’ve done


Sam Yoder | Dan Wilt – “Alpha And Omega” (Official Lyric Video + Song Story)

A new song celebrating everlasting Love, and the Lord of new creation.

Combining theological reflection on the God-Beyond-Words with poetic sensitivity and a celebration theme – is a labor of love. This collaboration between friends seeks to do all three in a way that inspires the Church to worship. Here is the story behind the song.

Alpha And Omega Plate

Alpha And Omega
Sam Yoder | Dan Wilt

No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
No mind conceived, nor understood
All that You’ve prepared for Your children

You turn our nights to brightest day,
Our deepest cries to highest praise
The best is yet to come for Your children

| Prechorus |

And by what measure could Your worth be weighed?
Or the riches of Your glory be appraised?

| Chorus |

Alpha and Omega,
You are great forever
You deserve, You deserve all our praise

Your love knows no beginning,
Your love is never ending,
You deserve, You deserve all our praise

| Bridge |

You were, You are, You’ll always be
From age to age, the great “I Am”


The Twin Masteries Of The Worship Leader

Two skills, running in tandem, will make or break our leadership.

As worship leaders, we are often looking for a secret key that will make us more effective at what we do. But the answer to being more effective at leading worship hasn’t changed. It never will.


In my experience, we as worship leaders will do almost anything else in order to avoid mastering the following two areas. I know that I do. When they come together, however, there is a quiet increase in effectiveness and authority in one’s worship leadership.

What are the two things that every worship leader must master to become the most effective worship leader we can be?
