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!
