Jeremiah Banto (second from the left), a student at Southern Connecticut State University was baptized on October 22, 2017 for the forgiveness of his sins! He made strides throughout his journey as he studied the bible and realized that there was nothing holding him back from making Jesus Lord of his life. Jeremiah said that “I knew I would become a disciple of Jesus it was more of a matter of when I would do that.” After attending an inspiring campus retreat Jeremiah said “there is nothing stopping me that I shouldn’t become a disciple of Jesus” It reminded me of the verse in Acts 22:16 “And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name.” After studying the bible for a few months this is the very same response that Jeremiah had to the message of the cross and what Jesus did for him. He knew that he was ready to change his life for God so that times of refreshing may come. Since his baptism Jeremiah has been making every effort to fight the Good fight and finding his place in God’s kingdom.
