Salvation is nothing other than saving man out of his fleshly, natural, created, animal, and selfish will….In addition to God giving us a new life, the return of our will to God is the greatest work of salvation. God gives us new life for the purpose of turning our will back to Him. The gospel is to lead us to a union with God in our will. Otherwise, the gospel has not achieved its mission. God does not intend to save just our emotion or our mind; He intends to save our will because once the will is saved, the rest will be included. To a certain extent, man may unite with God in the mind. He may also share the same emotion with God in many things. But the most important and the most complete union with God rests in the union of man’s will with God’s will [Matthew 7:21; 12:50; Romans 12:2; Colossians 1:9; 4:12]. This union of the will includes all the other unions of man and God. If the mind or the emotion is united with God, but the will is not, this union is still short. …The will stands for the attitude, opinion, and condition of man’s true self; therefore, it has the power and sufficiency to represent the whole being. If the will is not joined completely to God, other unions are shallow and empty. If the will that governs our entire being is in complete union with God, our entire being will be totally submissive under God’s hand. (Collected Works Watchman Nee, vol. 14, “The Spiritual Man (3),” p. 582)
