Nik Ripken steps forward, confronting one of the most compelling statements one can hear: “It’s time.” He poses a series of introspective questions, inviting you to truly reflect: “In this very moment, what decisive action does obedience demand of you? Which unresolved situations is God urging you to make peace with? And where in your life is God beckoning you to take a bold leap of faith?”
With sincerity and vulnerability, Nik delves into his and Ruth’s personal odyssey, revealing how they discerned that “it’s time” to wholly surrender and align themselves with Christ’s directives. Their story serves not just as a testimony, but as a beacon of inspiration for all who seek a life of genuine faithfulness.
