Count it all Joy
What does it mean to esteem someone with honour? Helen Roseveare had this thought when reading the Bible and it caused her to dig further and to find out what it means to esteem the Lord with honour. The book calls us to a life of full-hearted discipleship where Christ is at the centre. Birthed in us should be a desire to please Christ and to study him that we might indeed portray him. Above all we really esteem him with honour when we fully proclaim the gospel of Christ.
Count it all Joy exudes love for Christ, delight as well as struggle in serving him, and the wisdom of a tested and seasoned disciple. As always, Helen Roseveare's total commitment to Christ coupled with her biblical realism shine through to both challenge and encourage us.

I am glad that Roseveare left us this brief final testament to God's goodness when providence appears to frown. To borrow from the writer of Hebrews, by her faith, she still speaks, even though she is dead.
