The Marathon of Faith: Exhausted Yet Pursuing

You are in a marathon — the long race of the Christian life. In 1 Corinthians 9:24-27, the Apostle Paul pictures you as an athlete running, not for the perishable wreath of the Hellenic games, but for an imperishable prize of unfading glory. And as a Christian, your race is not a dash to be finished in 9.58 seconds. It is a marathon, a drawn-out adventure of pain and glory that may leave you, like Gideon and his men, “exhausted yet pursuing” (Judges 8:4). In this marathon of faith, you may experience the endorphins of a runner’s high at the halfway point, but you may also find yourself weeping, rejoicing, and weeping again in pain as you make your way toward the finish.

Did You Know?

The WSC German Torah Scroll The WSC German Torah Scroll

According to Dr. Scott Carroll, research scholar and biblical antiquities specialist, the 400-year-old Torah scroll that was recently gifted to the seminary is in remarkably good condition with very few errors. This particular scroll was most likely smuggled out of Germany during the atrocities of the Holocaust.

Be sure to view the scroll up close, now on display in the WSC library reference room.


"My main reasons for choosing WSC are that I get one of the best theological educations and I learn from some of the finest Reformed theologians of our day. There is a big difference between reading their books on the one hand and sitting in their class or even living rooms for personal conversations on the other hand."
—Simon Schuster, M.A.B.S. student from Germany
