According to this definition, we all affect others, either positively or negatively, in one way or another, for good or for ill. Perhaps we can also affect others in such a way that the other doesn’t act or react, too, to our “influence.” Regardless, like the falling dominoes, what we do (or don’t do) impacts others.
The concern for influencing others (and how) is a concern for the Christian. According to God’s Word, Christians want others to believe in Christ. We can’t force another to believe, but we do want to live according to God’s Word, loving others, and hope also that those who see how we live and love will have a yearning for Christ and His blessed peace.
