When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught [catch] of the fishes which they had taken: And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth [now on] thou shalt catch men.
Lk 5:8-10 (Peter, after Jesus provided a miraculous catch of fish.) The Way is to admit you're a sinner, one who does harm, and repent yourself before you tell others. (Click gold Scripture references for Principle Interrelations)

Neither pray I for these alone [only], but for them also which shall believe on me through their word [message WU]; That they all may be one; [just WU] as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one [unity WU]; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto [with WU] you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. Jh 20:21

You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high." Lk 24:48-49 Since we have experienced Christ first-hand we should tell others, but not without the power of the Holy Spirit. But since the time He initially went out into believers following the resurrection of Christ, He comes to live in us as soon as we believe.

Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be [made WU] known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in [the] light: and what ye hear [whispered] in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. Mat 10:26-27 Proclaim the gospel publicly.

They that be whole [healthy] need not a physician, but they that are sick. But go ye and learn what that [this] meaneth, I will have [desire] mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Mat 9:12-13

Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest [field WU]. Mat 9:37-38

Whosoever therefore shall confess [acknowledge WU] me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Mat 10:32-33

And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, [though WU] he knoweth not how. For the earth bringeth forth fruit [grain WU] of herself [by itself WU]; first the blade [stalk WU], then the ear [head WU], after that the full corn [grain] in the ear. But when the fruit is brought forth [ripe], immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come. Mk 4:26-29 We sow the word of the gospel in people’s hearts and God makes it grow.

Verily, verily [most assuredly], I say unto you, He that receiveth [accepts WU] whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. Jh 13:20

He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. He that receiveth a prophet in the name of [because he is WU] a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a [because he is my WU] disciple, verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, he shall in no wise [way] lose his reward. Mat 10:40-42
