When we see the album artwork there is a sense of excitement anticipating the good feelings we will encounter when listening to the music. Jesus Christ our Lord opened the curtain of holiness that separated us from God- giving us front row seats, back stages passes and a chance to fly on the family jet- a relationship with our heavenly Father! He provided the propitiation for our lack of holiness. Sprinkled on the mercy seat, the blood of a lamb without blemish was applied by the high priest to make himself and the people acceptable before God. How much more will Christ Jesus, God’s son satisfy* all holiness requirements providing us access once for all by a new and living way.- Teresa

Hebrews 10:19-25 (ESV)
19 Therefore, brothers,[a] 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.
