Ministry Digest Vol. 2, No. 3


In this issue we will continue the four lines of ministry that began in the first issue of Ministry Digest (vol. 1, no. 1). The first line—The History of the Lord’s Recovery—continues with chapters 25 through 28 of The History and Revelation of the Lord’s Recovery, which are in volume 2 of The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1981. These chapters provide a brief account of the Lord’s recovery in the United States, South America, Korea, Africa, and Australasia and a word concerning the Lord’s recovery being a living, not a work. The second line—Words for New Believers—continues with chapters 20 through 23 of Lessons for New Believers, which are in volume 3 of The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1959. These chapters speak of preaching the gospel and the practice of fellowship. The third line—Maturing in Life—continues with chapters 4 through 7 of The Purpose of God’s Salvation, which are in volume 3 of The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1961. This line focuses on the unsearchable riches of Christ, the purpose of God’s salvation, five practices essential to the fulfillment of God’s purpose, and our need to experience Christ as both God and man for the church life. The fourth line—The High Peak of the Divine Revelation—continues with chapters 3 through 6 of The Experience of God’s Organic Salvation Equaling Reigning in Christ’s Life, which are in volume 5 of The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1994–1997. The speaking in these chapters concerns conformation and glorification and then concludes with three manifestations of what it means to reign in life.
