Bishop Oyedepo referenced Dr. Orsborne, the statesman, teacher, author, publisher, linguist, designer, pianist, and administrator is one of his sermons where he was stirring and spuring graduates of Covenant University to be diligently in studying for victory in life.
He added that the swimming pool in Dr Osborne’s house was converted to a library and that his bedroom opened straight to his library – evident the love of the late evangelist for studying.
Additionally, he mentioned in the sermon that he was shocked to have found Pastor Kenneth Hagin reading one of Dr. Osborne’s book, as he assumed a man of such spiritual stature may not need to read other people’s books.
“I was into Keneth Hagin’s office years ago and I saw him reading a book – new release by T L Osborne on his table.I was dazed. How could Hagin still be reading anybody’s books at this stage of global impact and relevance”, as he motivated the graduates.
The man of God who has over 35,000 people in employ said: “anybody who has attained any great height in life has been a tireless learner.
He also disclosed that he was with TL Osborne a few times in life and has insights into some of the secrets of his life.
