Dewis Iesu

You may understand it as choose Jesus. We have choices in everything we do. This is what we were looking at in Darganfod (our Welsh speaking service in Ammanford Church). We can choose to vote in the general election, and we can choose who to vote for. We can choose to take an interest or choose to ignore everything political. It was interesting to put this idea of choice into prespective, as we think as Christians what our choice depends upon.

Obviously what we decide to do will be influenced by our past, background and experience, but our choices will show something of our relationship with God. Take Joseph. He had a choice. He could either sleep with Potaphas wife or not. He chose not to, which landed him in the joint. His choice dependent on God – not dependent on a happy outcome.

This was really helpful in its self to think about, but it was then put into the context of reconciliation – the process of the separated being restored, or bought back. While it is God who saves us, we still have a choice. Will we live Gods way, or our own way?

So we must ask ourselves this question. Have we made the important choice of Iesu Grist (Jesus Christ)?

We ended with a great Hymn by William Williams, ‘Rwy’n dewis Iesu a’i farwol glwy.’ I choose Jesus and his fatal wounds.


am Jamie, and I am a Christ follower. I love Jesus but more importantly he loves me and made the ultimate sacrifice of his son so that all the things I have done, and will do, have been forgiven. And now I know God, and I pursue to know him more. Motivated and transformed by his grace I live for God, to glorify him by enjoying him.
