The Rev. John Gunn

Companionship

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

On the topic of marriage, The Rev. Gunn writes, "A true wife delights more in her husband's companionship than in any success he may achieve. The apostle Peter offers excellent counsel to husbands; he says, 'Likewise ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife as being heirs together of the grace of life.' The husband who accepts this counsel has a happy wife and a happy home."

Routine Life

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

In this episode of Be Still and Know on the subject of routine, The Rev. John R. Gunn writes, "Let not those of us whose destiny it is to move in the same circuit year after year become weary of the monotonous trudge or feel that our life is not worthwhile. Perhaps the new year does not promise any great advancement in position or fame. But let us face it with the high resolve to make it the best of all our years."

A New Year's Eve

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

New Year's Eve - tradition has made it the day of the new chance; the good resolution. The chance for new things, perhaps even a new life; to plan anew. The Rev. John R. Gunn asks, "What do you propose for the New Year? A better life? A kinder word? A greater effort? Or more of the same old you?"

Deliverer From Sin

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

In speaking of the story of Mary and Joseph bringing the Jesus into the temple, The Rev. Gunn states, "This is the real story of Christmas; this is the reason we celebrate the day and rejoice all the year. This babe is indeed our deliverer from sin and the fear of death. In Him is God's light filling all of our lives in this day and in the coming year."

The Rev. John Gunn

Christian Light

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

In this episode of Be Still and Know, The Rev. Gunn states, "The lights of the Christmas candles and the lights of the Christmas tree are gone now, but the great light, the light of the world remains. And will remain with us throughout the year, for Jesus said, 'I have come into the world as light so that no one who has faith in me should remain in darkness.'"

The Rev. John Gunn

Christmas Spirit All Year

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

In this episode of Be Still and Know, The Rev. Gunn states, "The Christmas light is the true spirit of Christmas - the remembrance that Christ came into the world on this day for us and for all men. We need this idea in our hearts throughout the year; not just once a year on Christmas Day."

The Rev. John Gunn

Sincere Good Manners

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

The Rev. John R. Gunn asks, "What are the qualities which do most to sweeten life? Surely we would name good nature, sincerity, generosity, a sense of humor and good manners. You may be a paragon of virtue, but if you disregard the common amenities of life, you will make yourself a common nuisance."

The Rev. John Gunn

God's Guidance

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

The Rev John R. Gunn writes, "God has given each one of us a heart, which can pick up the beam of His guidance, if we keep tuned to Him. If we listen to the sound of His voice, we can fly our plane of life safely and not get lost amid the storms and fogs of the world, but there are certain factors which may cause us to lose His voice."

The Rev. John Gunn

Marriage the Divine Ideal

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

In this episode of Be Still and Know, The Rev. John R. Gunn writes, "Marriage, as God intended it to be, is a union of two souls. It is a union so spiritual that it was used by the apostle Paul as a symbol of the mystical union between the heavenly bride-groom and his bride, the Church. Marriage is serious, more serious than death."

The Rev. John Gunn

Sacrificial Love

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

"What suffers so long and so much as love? What bears so much; what else imposes such heavy burdens? What way is so bleak and steep and rugged as that way out into the wilderness and up the mountainside on which love takes the shepherd in search of his lost sheep?" asks The Rev. Gunn in this episode of Be Still and Know.
