READ 500

Develop a habit of reading the Life-studies for your spiritual nourishment and growth in Christ.


The 500 Life-studies project aims to help and encourage believers to get into the truth by using the Life-study of the Bible. The "500" comes from Witness Lee's encouragement to seeking believers to read at least 500 Life-study messages for their spiritual nourishment and growth (see quote below).

Over the last ten years we have published approximately twelve hundred Life-studies. I have the assurance to say that whoever has read through five hundred Life-study messages properly has been an excellent believer.

  • Create custom Life-study reading schedules.
  • Track your progress as you work toward reading goals.
  • Dive deeper with study questions for each message.
  • Share enjoyment with groups for mutual encouragement.

Be a good minister of Christ Jesus, being nourished with the words of the faith and of the good teaching which you have closely followed.

1 Timothy 4:6b
