Hands on Fire was written on the kitchen floor of my in-laws' house. I remember the night being quiet and everything feeling very clear. I sat down with my wife, Julia, and sang her the first verse and a few minutes later the rest of the song came through. Hands on Fire is a song about being full of power and full of grace to do world-changing things. The underlying themes are that we become these full vessels through faith in the ultimate Fulfiller, Yeshua (Jesus). There is both journey toward transformation and friction in that process at play here. We desperately want to change the world like Yeshua did, and yet we need to be transformed if this power is to be at work not just in us, but also through us. I give great thanks and credit to Josh Garrels for his time and effort spent bringing this recording to a level that he first envisioned after I demoed the song for him at Small Voice Records. This would not be the same song without him. I pray that you are challenged and thrown into a pursuit of the power to change the world through the Spirit of the Almighty while listening.

To know Him is the reward, and I hold that this is life in its fullest iteration. ... more
