Highest service

Hebrews 9;14

Salvation is not an end in itself.  The believer has been freed from sin to serve God, saved to serve.

Justified

Romans 5;9

Justified-to be declared righteous, by His blood-through His violent, substitutionary death.  Christ bore the full fury of God’s wrath in the believing sinner’s place, and there is none left for him (see Romans 8:1, and 1 Thessalonians 1:10; 5:9).

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Romans 3:24; 5:9.
