Verse 29 is the focus of this devotional thought, specifically the phrase, 'they that have done good.' According to Scripture, judgment is always on the basis of works, because one's works are a manifestation of his faith and inner condition. This means that we will be judged not by our profession of faith in Christ, but by the life we have lived. Let's examine our lives by God's holy Word and endeavor to live in a manner pleasing unto Him!
"But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." Matthew 12: 36-37. "For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works." Matthew 16:27
