If we are created in God’s likeness, does that mean he has a liver and pinky toe?

So God created mankind in his own image,
    in the image of God he created them;

    male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27

            A man’s body works within in the confines of his environment.  Because we eat food, drink water and breathe air, our body is built to exist with those elements.

            God does not need food, water or air.  He exists in a dimension beyond our limited space.  God is described as spirit.

God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth."  John 4:24

            The likeness of God means we have characteristics like God.  We understand truth, justice and freedom.  We reason, plan, create, empathize, serve and love.  We live within a past, present and future.  We desire relationship and have freewill.  In those ways, we were created like God.
