I posted this unusual plaque from a private collection last month. Ian Holmes has identified the text as the title of Spurgeon sermon delivered on January 17, 1858.
Ian has provided the pictures below of an inkwell with that text. He wonders whether these items were produced (perhaps along with the 'But One Thing is Needful:' plaque mentioned in an earlier posting) to be sold on Spurgeon's tour.
I searched the internet for Spurgeon sermons titled 'God is Love' (a pair to the plaque above can be found with that title on the brightly coloured plaques page). I drew a blank, but did find a page of anecdotes regarding Spurgeon's love of cigars!
