They went each to his own house,
but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives

John 7:53-8:1 (ESV)

Isn’t it a relief, at the end of a busy day, to be able to get back to your own house? But not for the Lord! The One who made all things, had no home of his own and nowhere to lay his head. (Matt.8:20) For him it was yet another night under the stars – stars which he himself had made! Now, with his work on earth completed, he is back in his heavenly home, back at his Father’s side. This morning he will be taking our praises and presenting them to his Father. Mrs Peters wrote
Though feeble are our praises, Christ adds his sweet perfume.’ (PHSS 94)
