Author Biography

Ordained Minister, Teacher, Author, and Student of God's Word...

I come from humble beginnings, growing up poor in the streets of Chicago. After working hard and achieving a fair degree of success, I suffered a major setback. I lost everything I had.

I spent 20 yrs. living depressed and homeless on the street. I would probably still be there if not for the “Grace of God.”

Today I write and speak publicly about my experiences from a “Biblical Standpoint.” I’m a firm believer in the “Gospel of Christ” and His gift of salvation. The study of scripture... along with obedience... really can affect life in a positive way.

Reviewed by Lucinda Weeks for Readers' Favorite

The Jesus Command: The Mark of Discipleship by Mathew Milam II is an extraordinary look at the command given by Jesus Christ to “Love one another, as I have loved you.” Inside this beautiful work, readers will discover what the Bible tells us about how we are to love others the way that Christ first loved us. Filled with scripture references, readers will learn how to love God more deeply, by learning how to honor and obey Him by walking according to the spirit of God and by denying the flesh. Milam teaches how Christians can begin to abound in love for one another through fellowship and friendship. They will discover how to live among others in peace and harmony. Biblical principles of comforting one another, bearing one another’s burdens, being hospitable toward one another and many more are explained.

Powerful and insightful, Milam’s work will inspire readers to serve one another in Godly love. This is an incredible blueprint for how Christians can learn to live the life of love that Christ desires for his people. Systematic instructions are provided in an easy to follow formula, backed by relevant scripture verses from both the Old and New Testaments. This book embodies the true meaning of how to live as Christians should. This is one of those rare books that has the true potential to change lives, the world, and the course of history when the Godly principles taught within are adhered to. As a reader, I was in awe of how beautifully well written this book is, and blown away with the realization of what an impact this book can potentially have. I highly recommend The Jesus Command: The Mark of Discipleship by Mathew Milam II to all who desire to live a life in genuine obedience to Christ.
