We have access to God. It is an awesome thought. As Christians, we are able to approach God and call Him our Father based on the shed blood of Jesus. He is our great high priest who sits at the right hand of God and intercedes on our behalf. Since Jesus shed his blood and died, we have been justified before God. Since Jesus rose from the grave, we can have eternal life with God. And since Jesus sits at the Father’s right hand, we can have access to God and relationship with Him. But only Jesus makes this possible. The rest of the passage gives a believer’s response to this glorious truth. I hope that you will be drawn to greater affection for God through this passage.

Hebrews 10:19-25 (ESV)

19 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, 20 by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
