Don’t Walk In Error

10th April 2020

Scripture Reading: Mark 16: 1-20


“And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.” (Mark 16: 1)

The three women in our Focal Scripture bought spices in order to anoint and preserve the body of Jesus. Jesus had told His close disciples and followers that He would rise from the dead after three days; these three women were part of that group of disciples and close associates, yet they forgot what Jesus said and went to buy what they would use to embalm Him. They were in error, and they were all united in the same error.

Friend, let not the desire to be united with anyone cause you to join them in the same error they are locked in. Don’t allow friendship to force you into joining another man to do what should not be done; don’t allow the length of time you have known a person to make you become a participant in an error you should rather avoid; don’t allow the mistake of another man to become your mistake; don’t participate in collective error.

The mere fact that those three women all agreed on the same thing did not make their agreement right. The mere fact that everyone around you has accepted a particular error will not make that error to suddenly become correct. The fact that a particular error is popular and highly recommended will not cause it to cease from being an error. The fact that you have people who have joined you in error does not make your error right.

The three women all walked in the same error of wanting to anoint the body of a Jesus that had risen from the dead, and not even one of them remembered that Jesus would rise from the dead, until they met the angel at the sepulcher. It was a company of people who were all ignorant. Look closely at your circle; if all you are surrounded with are men who are as ignorant and unknowledgeable as you are, then you need a new circle.

Don’t accept to be part of an error that others have chosen to be part of. Even if you will have to stand alone, choose to stand without being entangled in needless error.


I refuse to walk in error, in Jesus’ name!
