Ministry Digest Vol. 4, No. 3


In this issue we will continue four lines of ministry. The first line—The History of the Lord’s Recovery—contains chapters 23 through 26 of The Recovery of the Church according to the Pattern on the Mountain, which are in volume 1 of The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1950–1951. This section includes topics on fellowship concerning the districts, fellowship concerning arrangements for various services, and fellowship concerning district meetings. The second line—Words for New Believers—continues with another portion from chapter 48 of Crucial Truths in the Holy Scriptures, Volume 5, which is in volume 4 of The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1932–1949. This chapter on entering into the kingdom of the heavens is quite lengthy, and it will be continued in the subsequent issue of Ministry Digest. The third line—Maturing in Life—contains chapters 29 through 32 of The Kingdom, which are in volume 2 of The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1972. These chapters cover the matter of ambition for position being contrary to the kingdom life; the matter of Christ being versus religion, politics, doctrines, and law; the matter of the resurrected, ascended, and reigning Christ; and the matter of the reality of the kingdom. The fourth line—The High Peak of the Divine Revelation—continues with chapters 2 through 5 of Crystallization-study of the Epistle to the Romans, which are in volume 1 of The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1994–1997. These chapters cover the center of the gospel of God being Jesus Christ the God-man, the content of the gospel of God being the dynamic salvation of God in its fullness, and the structure of the gospel of God being the righteousness of God, the life of God, and the faith of the believers.
