Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

The War of Jesus Christ

Dietrich Bonhoeffer said this, in the confirmation sermon for three young men:
"Confirmands today are like young soldiers marching to war, the war of Jesus Christ against the gods of this world. It is a war that demands the commitment of one's whole life. Is not God, our Lord, worthy of this struggle? Idolatry and cowardice confront us on all sides, but the direst foe does not confront us, he is within us. 'Lord, I believe, help thou mine unbelief.'"
It was 1938.
Bonhoeffer quoted Mark 9:24; this excerpt from his sermon comes from Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas, p. 309
