You Have One Solitary Life

An unknown author wrote of the life of Jesus:

He was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman. He grew up in still another village, where he worked in a carpenter shop until he was thirty. Then for three years he was a traveling preacher.

  • He never wrote a book.
  • He never held an office.
  • He never had a family or owned a house.
  • He did not go to college.
  • He never traveled 200 miles from the place he was born.
  • He did none of the things one usually associates with greatness.
  • He had no credentials but himself.

He was only 33 when public opinion turned against him. His friends ran away. He was turned over to his enemies and went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed to a cross between to thieves.

When he was dying, his executioners gambled for his clothing, the only property he had on earth. When he was dead he was laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend.

Twenty centuries have come and gone, and today he is the central figure of the human race, the leader of mankind’s progress.

All the armies that have ever marched, all the navies that have ever sailed, all the parliaments that ever sat, all the kings the ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man on earth as much as this One Solitary Life "Jesus".

The true purpose of The Rock Bible College Biblical Studies Program is to help every student recognize the centrality of Jesus.

  • To study at Bible College...
  • To learn various facts about the Bible...
  • To become familiar with the various principles of truth...

Without recognizing the centrality of Jesus is to have missed the entire focal point of all Scripture.

  • The Bible contains history, but it’s not about history.
  • The Bible contains geographical information, but it’s not about geography.
  • The Bible contains information about kings, prophets, and preachers, but it’s not about them.
  • The Bible is about Jesus.

More specifically, the Bible is about God revealing Himself and reconciling the world unto Himself through the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

As I stated above, the true purpose of The Rock Bible College Biblical Studies Program is to assist and teach individuals how to recognizing the centrality of Jesus in every aspect of life. In Oral Roberts’ classis sermon, The Fourth Man, and later in his book, Christ in Book of the Bible, he shares the following insights about Jesus in the Bible, which clearly makes the point that Christ is the center of every aspect of life.

God has given each of us one solitary life, like Jesus, you do not have to be some special person to make an impact in this world. By the ministry of reconciliation, each of us has been grafted into the family of God as sons and daughters.

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. John 15:5

If we abide in him He will cause to be fruitful in the things we put our hands to, for without Him we can do nothing of ourselves. Therefore, I encourage each of you whether this is your very first quarter or if you are a returning student.

YOU CAN DO ALL THNGS THROUGH CHRIT JESUS WHO STRANGITHENS YOU!
