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.
From the Author
Not only did He make it a command, He expressly directed us to love one another as He had loved us. We should agree that this is something more than a casual suggestion or mere good advice. Now fast forward 2000 yrs. or so and you find a world in a state of confusion over what love is and for the most part, clueless on how to go about it. What passes for love is often selfish desire, and or sexual lust. Again, something we can agree is far removed from what Jesus intended.
"The Jesus Command", examines love from a Biblical point of view, focusing on Christ's intentions as it relates to Discipleship.
