The Story behind 'Wildfire'
January 19, 2016
1. A raging, rapidly spreading fire.
2. Any large fire that spreads rapidly and is hard to extinguish.
“Wildfire” is the featured track off Hollis Creek Revival’s debut album, In The River. By definition wildfire is a raging, rapidly spreading fire or any large fire that spreads rapidly and his hard to extinguish. Hollis Creek Revival’s “Wildfire” is the gospel that will spread throughout the world and can never be extinguished once set in motion. Missionaries leave their home and their families’ every day to carry the gospel to all the ends of the earth. These few are called to do what most are unable to do. Still they are called. Their sacrifice is sometimes unseen and goes unnoticed by those around them. But it doesn’t go unfelt and unwanted.
Leaving home in search of a calling can be the most amazingly terrifying thing one can do. The call is stronger than the desire to remain comfortable and safe. Still the calling is there. So you leave in search of something familiar in an unfamiliar place, all the while asking yourself “is this truly where I’m supposed to be?” Here in your wilderness, night after night pass, the cold weighs you down and the fear begins to overtake you. But this morning you awake and begin to feel the heaviness lift and hope reveal itself in the form of a spark. This spark will eventually turn into a Wildfire, and this fire will billow and light the world around you. Will you start the next Wildfire? The single is currently impacting Christian radio and the video can be viewed below.
