What do you do when you stumble and fall in sin? What do you do when temptation wins? In the story of David and Bathsheba, we see a temptation become a tragedy but then end in forgiveness. The first step in overcoming temptation is to be aware that certain situations bring extra temptations. But when temptation wins and sin is covered up, it only makes things worse. The only right response to sin is to come clean and trust in the mercy of God. But ultimately, temptation will not win because Jesus Christ has won the victory over sin and death.
