"But when one turns to the Lord the veil is removed. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit."
2 Corinthians 3:16-18

Before salvation it is as though we have a veil over our eyes, blinding us to the glory of God (see also 2 Cor ch4vs4), but when we repent; that is turn to the Lord, He lifts that veil (see also 2 Cor ch4vs6).
Then we see Christ in His glory. And this passage tells that this changes us.

Beholding the glory of the Lord transforms us into His image.

Let's beg the Lord to give us the freedom to see.
