Christians with Tormented Consciences

From the Beglic Confession Article 24:

Moreover, although we do good works we do not base our salvation on them; for we cannot do any work that is not defiled by our flesh and also worthy of punishment…. So we would always be in doubt, tossed back and forth without any certainty, and our poor consciences would be tormented constantly if they did not rest on the merit of the suffering and death of our Savior.

Maybe you’re different, but I need to be reminded of this because my conscience tends to be tormented constantly. I want to be sanctified, but see so many places where I fall so short. Jesus is my only hope. And he is a sure hope!
