“You can do anything you put your mind to!”
“The sky’s the limit!”
“You’re the best!”
“Follow your dreams!”
Did you hear these kinds of things growing up? Your parents sure meant well. They really felt like you were the most special creature to arrive on planet earth – a beautiful boy full of limitless possibilities. You could do anything in the world!
But now that that boy is grown up and in his twenties, you might find that such encouragement has become more paralyzing than motivating. If your possibilities really are endless, how will you ever decide which path to take and what to do with your life?

Asymco runs the numbers and finds that Apple’s marketshare/profit share situation in computers is not unlike what it gets in the mobile space. When looking at profits, Apple makes more profit than the top 5 Windows PC manufacturers combined.
I’m sure someone will be quick to point out that this is due to Macs being “overpriced”. But consider this, Apple is selling Subarus while everyone else is selling mostly Geo Metros. Of course the Subaru is more expensive.
The sermon is all about our way and God’s way with regards to salvation and our identity as sinners and our identity in Christ.
A few insightful quotes:
“Barabas means by the way, ‘Son of the father.’”
“If you want to know what it means for Jesus to be the Son of God, then look on Him in His death, hanging there, lifeless on a cross. This is most Son of God, this is Jesus most Lord, most King, most Savior, most TRIUMPHANT. Don’t get snookered into the lie, Easter Sunday is not the victory, Good Friday is the Victory. Easter Sunday is the celebration and the revelation of the Victory, the Victory is here, when He is dead. Here he is most King, most Lord, most Savior for you.”
“This is the last that the World gets to see of Jesus. The last view the World gets to see, Jesus dead on a cross. The World didn’t get to see Him rise from the dead.”
Be sure to listen to the whole thing.

The deplorable attack on innocent citizens in Boston while they were joined in healthy and joyous activity is beyond comprehension. As Christian citizens of this nation, we stand against wanton violence. We express our deepest sympathy for those whose loved ones have been lost and with the families of the injured. We ask our dear Lord Christ for blessings for the injured and strength for the bereaved. We pray for every blessing upon the doctors; emergency workers; and city, state and federal officials as they face this evil in dedicated service.
Like the death of our Lord Christ Himself, we pray that, even in this dark hour, the sacrifice and pain of those affected will not be in vain, but redound in good as yet unseen. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.” (2 Cor. 1:3–5).
