Ministry Digest Vol. 2, No. 5


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 3 through 6 of The World Situation and God’s Move, which are in volume 1 of The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1981. These chapters speak of God’s ultimate move to carry out His eternal intention, His ultimate recovery, and the world’s ultimate situation. The second line—Words for New Believers—continues with chapters 3 through 6 of Basic Lessons on Life, which are in volume 1 of The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1979. These chapters speak of God’s intention in man, Satan’s plot to spoil man, the real significance of man’s fall, and the salvation of life. The third line—Maturing in Life—begins a new book with chapters 1 through 4 of Knowing Life and the Church, which are in volume 1 of The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1953. These chapters speak of life being the goal of God’s creation and redemption, life being God Himself enjoyed by man, the obstacles that God’s life encounters in man, and the subjective obstacles encountered by God’s life in us. The fourth line—The High Peak of the Divine Revelation—continues with chapters 5 through 8 of The God-man Living, which are in volume 3 of The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1994–1997. These chapters provide a word of definition concerning the God-man living and then continue to speak of the first God-man’s living.
