We are continuing with Fellowship Concerning the Urgent Need of the Vital Groups for the God-ordained way reading schedule for the churches in Anaheim, Cypress, and Orange. Detailed information including the full reading schedule is available at churchinanaheim.org/gowreading/.
This week we will be reading Fellowship Concerning the Urgent Need of the Vital Groups, Messages 18 and 19. This book is available for purchase from Living Stream Ministry. You can also read it online at ministrybooks.org.
Fellowship Concerning the Urgent Need of the Vital Groups presents the matter of mutual teaching in the group meetings by mutual asking and mutual answering. We should learn to answer questions not in a doctrinal way but in a living way, and we must learn to teach with the highest revelation and the rich experience of life. We have the divine life with the divine capacity to speak for the Lord. We need to exercise this capacity without being afraid of making mistakes. We also need to receive the breaking of the cross to deal with our peculiar traits. How much we can be used by the Lord depends mainly on how much we would receive the breaking of the cross.
Message 19 covers the matter of paying the price to learn the divine truths and practice the mutual teaching in the vital groups. In order to participate in the vital groups, we must make up our mind with a definite determination that we will endeavor to get into the biblical truths. We also must decide to cease all our unnecessary talk, our murmuring, complaining, and gossiping. If we talk too much, our talk will annul our capacity to teach. We must learn to speak only what is worthwhile. Further, we need to learn to speak loudly, slowly, clearly, and “officially.” We should realize that in the Lord’s recovery, the greatest need, the primary need, is to gain the increase.
