Message: Why Wait Til Midnight?
By: Brent Jones
Don’t wait til midnight
When there is no sunshine
You are a stranger
Until there is danger
And that aint right
You say that
You love me
And cant live
Then why do
You call me
Only when you need me
[Luke 8:13 “Those on the rock are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away”]
Words that describe a fake person based off or from the song: 1) Stranger
2) Aint Right
3) No sunshine

But the moment there is no sunshine, they can be your best friend. But Then the next day, they disappear until they need something. And that aint right.
-Your midnight is that time of night, after hours, that darkest hour, where you are alone and you wait to show God the praise that he deserves.
