Thinking about traveling to Hong Kong this year? Maybe you have already been to Hong Kong and have seen all the main attractions. Just when you think that you have seen it all – there comes something new and exciting from around the corner.
Hong Kong has a great attraction that is popular among the mainland Chinese visitors. 41 years ago marked the death of a Chinese Martial Arts icon. The Hong Kong government teamed up with the Bruce Lee Foundation to put together an exhibition to bring in tourists. The exhibition has more than 600 items on display, including photos, costumes, and videos.
A 3.5 meter statue is now also on display for tourists to take pictures with. Close to 50 million people visit Hong Kong every year and many of them will make their way to the Kowloon side of the Harbor to visit the Bruce Lee statue. If you want to do this, try to make it before the sun sets, as you can get the best pictures of the harbor in the background and still make it back to Tsim Tsa Tsui for the Guinness World record-holding sound and light show. Many of these visitors are Christians who are fascinated with the martial arts movies of Bruce Lee.
Bruce Lee was not known to be a Christian, however, as Christians we should look at things around the world that are cultural influences that can help us share with those who have no connection to the teachings of Christ. The museum of Bruce Lee can be enjoyed on a personal level.
If you happen to travel to Hong Kong to see the Bruce Lee statue, you are more than likely to be surrounded by Chinese from the mainland. Try engaging them about Bruce Lee if they understand English. You might be surprised to learn that many of them will be excited to talk to you.
If you come across people that are fascinated with Bruce Lee, why not use that as a centerpiece to make new friends. Use some of the things that Bruce Lee has said to build a new relationship and introduce someone to Christ. Use the Bruce Lee Method:
Bruce Lee once said, “Do not pray for an easy life; pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.”
The Bible tells us, “Those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” The Bible does not promise us absence of trial for an easy life, but instead we are given the strength to endure the difficult ones.
It does not say that they will not grow weary because they are lying in bed watching movies, but that they will be running and still not grow weary.
Bruce Lee also said, “It is not a daily increase, but a daily decrease. Hack away at the essentials.” He went on to say, “Empty your cup so that it may be filled; become devoid to gain totality.” The Bible tells us that we must decrease so that He can increase.
Bruce Lee has helped people around the world to know more about China. Today Chinese are leaving China and traveling all around the world in ways that they have never done before in their entire history. Many of the Chinese are Christians and are representing China in ways that Bruce Lee was never able to.
Back to Jerusalem missionaries are missionaries from China that are sharing about Jesus in places that have never heard the Gospel.
Bruce Lee was fit, tough, and dedicated to bring his entire mind and body under control; however, he was not tough enough to beat death. He was not fit enough to live forever.
Today, Back to Jerusalem missionaries are cultural ambassadors that are giving people the keys to eternal life.
