Influencing others

Todays QuoteEvery day we influence others in one of two directions: (1) toward faith in Christ and eternal glory, or (2) toward rejection of Christ and eternal judgment.  ‘It is in the light of these overwhelming possibilities, it is with the awe and the circumspection proper to them, that we should conduct all our dealings with one another, all friendships, all loves, all play, all politics,’ writes [C. S.] Lewis.  ‘There are no ordinary people.  You have never talked to a mere moral.  Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations — these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat.  But is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit — immortal horrors or everlasting splendors.’  [Tony Reinke, Newton on the Christian Life]
