Your conscience is that small voice inside that guides your actions and thoughts, convicting you of wrongdoing—but the conscience is more than just a guilty feeling or a moral compass.
The conscience is a gift from God, the faculty of the heart that is to be shaped by what is right or wrong in God’s sight. Only through Christ can you receive a clean conscience, life, salvation, and peace.
Reading Isaiah with Luther offers highlights from Luther’s commentaries on the Book of Isaiah (where Luther explains the conscience), contemporary applications and explanations, and full-color artwork that helps you pause and reflect on key Luther quotes.
“Through the power of the Gospel, Christ comes to assure us that for His sake, we have life, salvation, and the forgiveness of sins. Being justified by faith, we now have peace with God in our hearts through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
