VV Baptism Testimonies

Jeremy Bellew

My name is Jeremy Bellew and here is my testimony.  I recently attended the baptism class. I have read the gospel and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior. I have repented many times for my sins and wish to never return to that behavior. He has given me an image to follow for the rest of my life. I have been broken many times and I know in my heart that is always Him that carries me and has to this point. I know He resurrects what's broken and dead inside and gives new life. What He did symbolizes the past, present and future with the death and resurrection of life. Before accepting Jesus Christ as my savior the first time I was empty inside. I was behaving recklessly, immoral at times and sinful. Once I read the gospel the first time and accepted Him into my life I felt the Holy Spirit working within me and found joy I had never had. He breathed life into me and my sins were forgiven. Eventually after some time, I drifted back to my sinful lifefor awhile(though not nearly as bad) but I have recommitted myself to Him again a couple years ago and I’m trying as hard as I can to stay away from my past mistakes. But when I make them I promptly admit and ask for forgiveness and repent. I love reading the gospel and that in itself lets me know what I need to do as far as how to live. I have had no hope in my life without Christ. The Lord Jesus breathes new life into me and without Him in my heart and the hope he brings I am nothing.
