Those Who Died in The Faith

The great eulogium of those whom Paul mentions in Hebrews 11 is that they died in the faith.

They had their fears, faintings, failings, conflicts and trials, like us; but they overcame by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of His testimony.

Now they are with Him, whom they loved unseen.

To Him be all the praise!

For themselves they have no more to say than that He loved them and washed them from their sins in His own blood.
