Will this man receive grace from men?

About a year and a half ago, I blogged this about Ben Cousins.

It has been interesting watching his apparent rehabilitation from afar. It’s now become interesting to see how people treat him. He’s become like a leper – unclean. No one wants to have him because people will feel too guilty to associate with him, as though he will contaminate them by his uncleanness. As anyone willing to offer up their grace to touch this man?

I still reckon he needs my saviour and the free grace of God. Jesus came to touch lepers and make them clean.

In the machinations of men and politics, I don’t know if we’ll get to see Ben Cousins play again. But as much as I would like for him to be playing AFL footy again, I would much more like God to touch him and make him clean, cleaner than any test sample could ever show him to be.
