When it comes to God's spirituality, the Scriptures tell us various things. First of all, at the most basic level, God is a spirit. That means, for example, that he's invisible. Even though God manifests himself sometimes visibly in Scripture and of course supremely through the flesh of his Son the Lord Jesus Christ, God in himself is invisible – no man has seen him, no man can see him. Secondly, it tells us that God is not confined by the usual parameters that embodied creatures would be confined by. God is omnipresent, God can be everywhere. God sustains the whole universe by his spirit, so it tells us it connects to our understanding of God's attributes, that God is without limit.
