7 best practices of Jesus for becoming better fisher of men are:
1) GO FILLED BY GRACE/TRUTH
On John 1:1-14 (NIV) states; In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life,and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness,and the darkness has not overcome[a] it. There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
2) STAND ON THE SHOULDERS OF THOSE WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE YOU.
John 1:26,29,35, says John answered them saying, 26 "I baptize in water, but among you stands One whom you do not know. 29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.
3) LOOK FOR THE SIGNS OF RIPENESS / ASK QUESTIONS
John 1:38 states, and Jesus turned and saw them following, and said to them, "What do you seek?" They said to Him, "Rabbi (which translated means Teacher), where are You staying?"
4) SET GOSPEL APPOINTMENTS / SHARE THE GOSPEL.
John 1:39, “Come,” he replied, “and you will see.” So they went and saw where he was staying, and they spent that day with him. It was about four in the afternoon.
“Come,” he replied, “and you will see.”
So they went and saw where he was staying, and they spent that day with him. It was about four in the afternoon.
5) CAPITALIZE ON RELATIONAL BRIDGES
John 1:40-42, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. 41 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ).42 And he brought him to Jesus.Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon son of John. You will be called Cephas” (which, when translated, is Peter).
6) START REPRODUCING YOURSELF RIGHT AWAY
Eccl. 8:5, Whoever obeys his command will come to no harm, and the wise heart will know the proper time and procedure.
7) CAST NETS TO CAST SCHOOLS OF FISH.
Mark 1:17 , “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”
