Miracles are Means

Acts 8:4-7 English Standard Version (ESV)

Now (A)those who were scattered went about preaching the word. (B)Philip went down to the city[a] of Samaria and proclaimed to them the Christ. (C)And the crowds with one accord paid attention to what was being said by Philip when they heard him and saw the signs that he did. For (E)unclean spirits, crying out with a loud voice, came out of many who had them, and many who were paralyzed or lame were healed.

Signs and wonders are means to an end. In short, the ministry is the preaching of the gospel and not miracles. Move in signs and wonders but don’t get caught up with the miracle – preach the gospel!!!. It means cast out demons and then preach the gospel. Don’t be gift-centered. Be gospel centered.
