“Mind the gap!” The voice is sounding in my ears every time I visit the tube in London. And afterwards I might find myself in a store named GAP. Some brilliant marketing people did something right finding a name for the brand.
In the business world we talk about gap analysis. Companies have rules, regulations and ways they want their business processes to be run. And then there is the reality; how things are actually run. There are different kinds of gap analysis. In general they all describe the gap between how things should be and how they are seen today.
How serious is the gap? How much will it cost to bridge the gap? Is it worth the cost to mend the gap? Is it worth the effort? Can somebody create a project that will fix the processes, the investments, the employees and the delivery in order to make the gap disappear? Or can we live with the gap?
There is a gap, whether I think it or not, whether I like it or not. There is a gap between the way God intended us to live and the way we manage to live. We might think the gap is small. We might think we can jump the gap. We might think we can create our own understanding of the gap and that it makes it alright. We might think the gap gets smaller if we behave nicely or think correctly. But our thoughts and intentions are not able to remove the gap.
«Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.»
There is this guy named Jesus. He came to mend the gap.Bible ref: John 5,24 Annonser
