"And God said, 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.' So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him" (Gen. 1:26-27).
"For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people" (Ps. 149:4).
If man is made in the likeness of God, and God is a Spirit, then man, of necessity, must be a spirit.
God made man for His own pleasure. He made man to fellowship with Him. Man is not an animal. Man is in the same class with God; otherwise, he couldn't fellowship with God.
Did you ever try to fellowship with a cow? Cows are in a different kingdom than you are in. They are in a different class. You can't fellowship with them.
But we can fellowship with one another. And we can fellowship with God, because we are in the same class of being as God.
God is a Spirit. And man, created in the image and likeness of God, is also a spirit being.
Confession: God is a Spirit, and I am a spirit. I am created in God's image and in His likeness. I am in the same class of being as God. I can give God pleasure. I can fellowship with Him.
