The Great Cosmetologist
Have you every considered cosmetology as a career? The root of the word cosmetology is the Greek word cosmos meaning “an orderly harmonious whole.” You may remember when the astronomer and physicist Carl Sagan hosted a wonderful television series entitled, “The Cosmos.” The series was about our world and its relation to our universe.
When someone goes to a beauty shop they are hoping to bring harmony out of their natural disorder. They want to be well groomed and have their blemishes covered. The cosmetologist is paid to make them look their best.
Bringing order out of chaos is remarkable feat. Jesus is coming back to earth to bring an end to war, suffering, death and sin. He will bring harmony. He is “The Great Cosmetologist.” Paul wrote, “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, ‘Death is swallowed up in victory.’” I Corinthians 15:52-55.
