HONG KONG- Around 800 Christian brothers from over 10 churches in the city gathered at the Men’s Rally organized by Centurion Ministries International last Sunday.
Three successful Christian brothers serving in different fields in Hong Kong are invited as guest speakers. They challenged the participants to reconsider the center of a man’s life, whether it should be career success, wealth or relationships. The three speakers are namely, President of Alliance Bible Seminary Rev. Dr. Leung Ka Lun, author of the book entitled "101 churches in Hong Kong" and CEO of a listed company Dr. Saimond Ip, and former president of the Life Underwriters Association of Hong Kong Brother Wu.
According to Rev. Leung, two most precious gifts to keep a brother remain passionate are a heart of gratitude and responsibility. He explained by citing the example of Apostle Paul, he was able to gain success in his life because he has walked through the difficulties by remembering the grace given by the Lord. Also, Rev. Leung reminded Christian brothers must acknowledge the sacrificing love of their wives, then naturally with the heart of gratitude, they will be able to live a life that returns this great love to the family.
Concerning responsibility, Rev. Leung suggested that "men are born for responsibilities and responsibilities can make a man grow." Therefore, in a husband-and-wife relationship, the wife should show interdependency with the husband so as to allow the husband to perform his role.
"We must seek the revival of the brothers before the church and the society can revive," Rev. Leung concluded as saying.
The same occasion also marks the launch of men’s fellowship video resources in Hong Kong by Centurion Ministries International. The resources are specially designed to help churches minister Christian brothers. Rev. Leung, senior pastor of the North Point Alliance Church Rev. Gordon Siu, Rev. Chan Young Man from the Abundant Life Christian Church, and other famous Hong Kong pastors are the key authors of the resources.
