I'm curious, is there ever a time in which you've intimidated others by your testimony? Or, the opposite, a time in which you've been intimidated by another's testimony? Or felt like your testimony isn't good enough?
I ask because lately in my classes and with a few others it seems as if my testimony of God's saving and keeping grace isn't up to others' standards. I was baptized as an infant, have never known a time in which I didn't believe in Jesus, surrendered everything to God at a young age EONS ago and have never seen a reason to stray* so my testimony is really of God's faithfulness. But lately, I have gotten the impression that there's something wrong with this, as in either "I must be hiding some sin cuz everyone strays at some point" or "you can't really be saved if you can't remember it" or "the grace that God gives to sinners is more special than the grace God gives to keep one faithful."
As I type this, I know these lines sound silly, but I really do feel like I have been around people the last few months who believe this and I am wondering if anyone else gets this or if it is just me?
Interestingly, when I discussed this with someone today he said that he encountered in his life that someone outright did not like his testimony and told him so. Apparently, his testimony of God's faithfulness made the other person feel intimidated.
