Peter Gabriel captured the sentiments of our time back in the year 2000 in the song Downside Up:
I looked up at the tallest building Felt it falling down I could feel my balance shifting Everything was moving around These streets so fixed and solid A shimmering haze And everything that I relied on disappeared
(Refrain) Downside up, upside down Take my weight from the ground Falling deep in the sky Slipping into the unknown
All the strangers look like family All the family looks so strange The only constant I am sure of Is this accelerating rate of change
By contrast, in this chapter Paul challenges us to stay focused on Jesus. God brings stability, direction and meaning to the intentionally Christ-focused life.
