Part 2 of chapter 9 deals with the reality of true conversion.  In order for one to have a true conversion experience one must be totally surrender to Lordship and salvific authority of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Although Saul was steeped in religion (a Pharisee) he needed a personal relationship with Christ in order to be converted and saved.  Many may want the benefits, but are not willing to obey the Word of God.
