What has Jesus told His disciples to do with their resources?

  1. Make _____________________ of all nations. Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8

Every law in the Old Testament revealed a ________________, a truth about who God is and what He’s like. Even though the specific laws are no longer ______________________, the principles they reveal and express still hold true
