Message from our vicar
A Tribute to Rev. T.C.Mammen

Dearly beloved in Christ,

“Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel." Philippians 1:12.

Paul undertook his fourth missionary journey to Rome in order to preach the Gospel to the Romans. However, this missionary the journey was the most difficult and challenging of all--he was arrested, underwent trials, confinement, bitten by a snake, and had a shipwreck on his journey to Rome. And most distressing of all, Paul reached Rome as a prisoner. If some of us took this journey and encountered these life-threatening struggles and sufferings we would most certainly consider that as a huge failure in our mission. How can we consider reaching a city for evangelism a success if we arrive there as a prisoner? But Pau was a truly a man of God, a man of great faith and carried within him an uncommon determination that comes what he will not allow his many challenges and difficulties distract or discourage him from his central mission, which is only focused on sharing Christ and the Gospel with the people of Rome.

There are several spiritual lessons that we can learn from Paul’s missionary journey to Rome. Firstly, even in the middle of false accusations, snakes, shipwreck, prison experiences, Paul was exactly where God called him to be. A call to God’s ministry is not a bed of roses, following God’s will leads us into storms and hardships. But God’s promise has always been that he will never leave or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). Secondly, it is in our weakness that
God’s power is made perfect. Paul in this missionary journey had run into many life-threatening and helpless situations, he was far from being in control of the situations, and knew, more than anyone,
that it is in acknowledging God is in control and can we find strength in Christ. As Paul writes, when we are weak, then we are strong (2 Corinthians 12:10).

Thirdly, struggles in life should be seen as opportunities to be a witness to Christ. Amidst all his trials and tribulations in the journey, Paul was presented with great opportunities to be a witness to the love of God in Christ to governors, kings, soldiers, sailors, and islanders. Had he not encountered these challenges, he would not have the opportunity to reach out to all these precious souls with the gospel. Fourthly, it is in and through the challenges in life that we are made into the kinds of people God wants us to be. In our trials, faith, resolve, and character is not only tested but they also happen to be strengthened.

And finally, the most profound thing is that God has a profound plan for the path we walk in life. We do not suffer needlessly or randomly, God uses every pain in life, failure, and struggle for a higher purpose—Paul writes, “Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all (2 Corinthians 4:16-17). Yes, our path is narrow but it leads to eternal glory.

The verse “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21) exhilarating and energizing. Paul wrote these words as he reflected on the purpose of his life while in prison. Our beloved T.C.Mammenachen’s life exemplified this proclamation by Paul. His life was all about Christ—Christ was his abiding and compelling passion; Christ and Christ alone gave hi meaning, direction, and purpose in life. In the face of many struggles, sufferings, disappointments, setbacks, obstacles and unfavorable circumstances in life, he was joyful. He was a man of strong faith and a man of prayer who longed for winning souls for Christ, working tirelessly as a faithful servant to build God’s Kingdom. He never allowed his life struggles from ‘advancing’ of Gospel. He brought comfort to everyone far and near. He proclaimed the gospel unto his last breath. In his last sermon, he urged us to live out a truly Christian life, a life revealing Christian character, witnessing to our Lord. He encouraged us to repent of our sinful ways and be saved. Thus to be privileged as the children of God in this world and to be seated at the right hand of Jesus in eternity.

“Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing.” (Albert Schweitzer). Mammenachen is an example for us to follow. He was a blessing to all of us. “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Jude, will award to me on that day - and not only to me but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” (2 Timothy 4:7,8). Like Paul our beloved T.C. Mammenachen won God’s reward for His faithful and righteous life.

May the fruits of his labor continue to be seen in our lives.

With Prayers
Rev. Sajit Thomas John
Vicar.
