The United States Constitution provides its citizen's the right to peaceful protest or demonstration.  Many are taking advantage of their constitutional right to peacefully demonstrate while others are taking advantage to riot.  

As a Christian, I live with dual citizenship.  My earthly citizenship affords me a constitutional right to demonstrate while my Heavenly citizenship commands me to demonstrate. 

Paul's letter to the church at Rome lays out clear guidelines on how we are to demonstrate.  Paul spends chapters 1-11 clearly defining the root of our salvation, grace.  In chapter 12-16, he shows us what fruit is born as a result of the root. 

I believe chapter 12 gives clear guidelines of what Christians should daily demonstrate. I encourage you to read and meditate on this text. Let us demonstrate that which we have been commanded so that we can make the real Jesus known!  Let us give this country a demonstration that doesn't tear or destroy but one that builds up.  Let us not do it because we are better than that but because Jesus is worthy of it.

Romans 12:9-20

Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. 11 Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. 12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. 13 Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. 17 Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. 18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. 19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” 20 To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
