Assurance
Q-xxxvi: WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS WHICH FLOW FROM SANCTIFICATION? A: Assurance of God's love, peace of conscience, joy in the Holy Ghost, increase of grace, and perseverance therein to the end.

I. We ought first to know that there are no good works except those which God has commanded, even as there is no sin except that which God has forbidden.
