A man left his apartment one morning and walked to work through the city streets.  As he passed a pet store there was a parrot sitting in the window. To the man’s surprise the parrot yelled out to him, “Hey buddy!”

Amazed, the man walked over to the window and spoke to the bird. To which the
parrot replied, “You’re fat and ugly!” The man walked away very upset and offended.

The next day, the man left his apartment as usual and was walking down the same street where the pet store was located. Again, as he passed the parrot, the bird yelled out, “Hey buddy, you're fat and ugly!"

With that, the man stormed inside the pet store and demanded to speak to the owner. He threatened the owner and told him that the parrot had better not ever say that to him again or else he would sue the pet store and the owner. The owner scolded and threatened the parrot. He then reassured the man that it would not happen again.

On the third day, the man again left his apartment and walked to work. Once again he walked past the pet store. As he was passing he heard a loud, "Hey buddy!" The man instantly spun around and stared directly with eyes of death at the parrot. The parrot looked at the man and said sheepishly, "You Know!"

There are some things in life that you can just know. Of all the things to have assurance on, the greatest assurance is to know that you have a real relationship with God. Many claim to know Him, but really they only know OF Him. Many fall short in their pursuit of a relationship with God because they try to know God without having to get to know His Son, Jesus Christ. The problem with that is that you cannot know God without having a personal relationship with Jesus. Notice what the Bible says, “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also…’ “

So, it’s real simple. Do you want to really know God? Do you really want to experience the power of God in your life? Do you want the assurance that you will have a relationship with God that will last forever? Then you must come to His Son, Jesus. Why don’t you do that today? Ask Jesus to be your best friend, your Savior and open door to God. Then you’ll know that you know!   

Verse To Meditate On:
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”     John 14:1-3
