This Sunday, January 24th, 2016, The Bridge Church in Denton, TX had a special guest speaker, Pastor Stuart Bell from the UK. He shared an amazing message about Filling the House and Guarding the House.

Fill the House, Guard the House

In this week’s message, our guest speaker, Pastor Stuart Bell from Lincoln, UK, walked us through John 12:1-8, in which Mary anoints Jesus’ feet with perfume and dries them with her hair. In this passage, Pastor Stuart highlighted 10 ways in which we can set the atmosphere in our house.

“Mary, therefore took a pound of expensive ointment made from pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume,” (John 12:3)

First, we need to fill the house with…

  • expectancy
  • hospitality
  • fragrance
  • testimonies
  • an overflow of the crowd

Then, we need to guard the house from…

  • opposing atmospheres
  • small mindedness
  • hidden agendas
  • the religious mindset
  • attitudes within the house

“And it came to pass, when the priests came out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the Lord, so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord.” (1 Kings 8:10-11)
