Ministry Digest, Vol. 04, No. 02
In this issue we will continue four lines of ministry. The first line--The History of the Lord's Recovery--contains chapters 19 through 22 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, 1950ñ1951. This section includes topics on being conformed to the image of God's Son, the grace of God being God Himself, fellowship concerning the elders, and fellowship concerning the deacons. 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, 1932ñ1949. This chapter on entering into the kingdom of the heavens is quite lengthy, and it will be continued in subsequent issues of Ministry Digest. The third line--Maturing in Life--contains chapters 25 through 28 of The Kingdom, which are in volume 2 of The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1972. These chapters cover the path from rejection to glory, some practical matters concerning the kingdom life, and the reward of the kingdom. The fourth line--The High Peak of the Divine Revelation--continues with chapters 42 through 44 of God's New Testament Economy, which are in volume 3 of The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1984. These chapters focus on the application of the New Jerusalem to the believers, including its triune living, triune enjoyment, and triune expression. This section then continues with chapter 1 of Crystallization-study of the Epistle to the Romans, which is in volume 1 of The Collected Works of Witness Lee, 1994ñ1997. This chapter covers the center of the gospel of God being Jesus Christ the God-man, particularly focusing on the essence of the person of Jesus Christ the God-man.
