The last time I watched Tangled the similarities between Rapunzel and Saul struck me with immense meaning. Saul was the baddest of the bad. It says in verse 13 that he was evil. He hated Christians and was doing his best to wipe them from the earth. He was captive in his sin, not knowing that Jesus was his way out. Rapunzel was also captive by evil. Her mother had betrayed her and trapped her in a tower. Both Saul and Rapunzel were in situations where they were captive and yet thought they were happy. All that changed when Saul saw the light of Christ and Rapunzel saw the floating lights. They were freed. No longer bound by their past they went on to make a difference in their world for the better. They became the lights to others.
You were also once captive by evil. So was I. Christ saved us and made us His lights for the world. Our job is to shine and proclaim the name of Jesus. When we do this others will come to know Him and become lights as well. We need hope and light in this world, now more than ever. The world is looking for light—let's give it to them!
I encourage you to keep shining! Let the world know about the hope you have. You have a King inside of you, Christ in you the hope of glory!
