What is God Like? – God is Spirit

As I stated in a previous blog, I am reading Christian Beliefs: 20 Basics every Christian Should know by Wayne and Elliot Grudem. Here of are some of main points of  Chapter 2 titled “What is God Like.”

God is Spirit

God is Spirit, and does not have a human form.

  • He is not made of any matter
  • He has no parts, size or dimensions

Jesus affirmed this in John 4:24, “God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

God made us with a spiritual nature. He gifted us with spirits in which to worship Him. In Christ, we receive the Holy Spirit which testifies that we are sons and daughters of God.

  • “God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”(John 4:24)
  • But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him. (1Corinthians 6:17)
  • The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, (Romans 8:16)
  • then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it. (Ecclesiastes 12:7)

This is an important attribute since somehow people tend to picture of God as being this white haired, and bearded man. He is far more excellent than any other kind of existence, and we could never place a image on Him.
