Timothy . . . is my beloved and faithful child in the Lord. He will remind you of my methods. This is taking from 1 Corinthians 4:17.

A newly appointed brother should not feel that as soon as he receives some responsibility in the congregation, he needs to use it to change course—to do things in a way that is completely different from the way they were done before. The need for change is determined, not by one’s desire for change, but by the needs of the congregation and the direction we receive from Jehovah’s organization. So if you are appointed, reassure your fellow believers and show respect for experienced elders by continuing to use their Bible-based methods. However, as you gain experience, you will no doubt share in applying changes that will help the congregation to stay in tune with Jehovah’s progressive organization. In fact, Jehovah may in time move all you faithful learners to do even greater works than those of your teachers. John 14:12 tells us: “Most truly I say to you, whoever exercises faith and you will also do the works that I do; And he will do works greater than means, because I am going my way to the Father.”
