Can divorced Christians serve in the church?

The church often treats divorced people as the black sheep in God’s family. Some are even told that God can’t use you in ministry if you’ve been married before. But does Scripture support that? This was Brenda’s question, a recent caller to the program.

While largely overlooked in Christian discussions about divorce, 1 Corinthian 7 is an eye-opening passage for answering if marital status is a qualifier to be used by God.

In this short video clip, you’ll be encouraged that no matter what you’ve done or not done in your past, Christ has made you blameless, holy, and pure – and equally able to serve in His church!
