You have to configure Git to use the above template file (for example, .gitmessage in your home directory), then create the template file by running.
git config --global commit.template ~/.gitmessage
subl ~/.gitmessage
This will invoke sublime with the template (use code if you use VSCode) Now copy paste the above template, hit save and your are done.
Now when commiting changes instead of using git commit -m "", Use git commit this will invoke the commit template which you already set.
