The London Underground is the one of the largest subway systems in the world. Affectionately called “the tube” by the British, it handles up to 3 million passenger journeys a day. If you ever get the chance to ride the London Underground, you will most definitely while standing on the platform, hear the announcement, “Mind the gap!” Now “Mind the gap!” is a warning for you to watch your step so you don’t fall into the space between the platform and the train. It is reported that most daily travelers never seem to pay attention to this admonition, thus becoming conditioned to the warning by either ignoring it or giving it little or no thought. You may think to yourself, why is it so important to “Mind the gap!”

Well, on the surface, it looks as if there is not much to be alarmed about, out of 3 million passenger journeys a day they reported only having 0.003% of accidents in 2003. Wow, what a small number you may say, but let’s dig a little deeper, 0.003% of injuries equals 90 injuries, for 2003 and out of those; 9 were fatal. Well now that 0.003% doesn’t seem so small a number to those who were injured and especially for the families of those who died. But, I know you’re sitting they’re thinking, what in the world does the London Underground has to do with (Ezekiel 22:29-30) Well I am glad you asked? For you see this illustration lends itself to the topic of today’s message. “Mind the gap!”

You see there are a lot of gaps in life – unmet emotional needs, or physical needs, could be “gaps” in our lives. Your resources and finances are “gaps” that you need to “mind”. (To make sure that they are not being mismanaged or mishandled.) Your family and relationships sometimes have “gaps” that need to be looked after. Closing these “gaps” in your life is vital to the very welfare of you as a person. Moreover, closing the “gap” in your spiritual life is much more paramount and essential to your well being as a Christian.
