What happens to us, as Christians, when we are sprinkled with Jesus's blood?

In the Old Testament, Moses sprinkled the people with the blood of animals.
Exodus 24:6-8
Moses took half of the blood and put it in bowls, and the other half he splashed against the altar. Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read it to the people. They responded, “We will do everything the Lord has said; we will obey.” Moses then took the blood, sprinkled it on the people and said, “This is the blood of the covenant that the Lord has made with you in accordance with all these words.”

Jesus, when he instituted the Lord's Supper said "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me." (1 Corinthians 11:25).

What does this blood do for us?

Hebrews 10:19 - 22

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.
