IntroductionWelcome! This blog is dedicated to those reforming legalists who want nothing more than to rest wholly in the finished work of Calvary's Lamb. It is my aim to provide helpful insights and posts to help those struggling with the sin of works righteousness fight the fight of faith and come to rest in Christ's finished work. My name is Matthew Blair and I am a dog groomer (yep, a groomer), reformed in my theology, husband to Rhoda, dad to Alexis and Savanah, and a member of Calvary Baptist Church. I would also like to invite you to visit my other blog "Life With A Bible", and my website dedicated to the works and life of Octavius Winslow!

Saying that I have been in a spiritual “funk” for the past 3 or so years now would be an understatement. Some might refer to it as a “dark night of the soul”, some depression, some just a part of … Continue reading
For those prone to view their devotional time as a means of earning a good or better standing before God, this is prescribed medicine.
