1 Thessalonians 2:13

And for this cause we also (kai dia touto kai hmeiv).
Note kai twice. We as well as you are grateful for the way the gospel was received in Thessalonica.

Without ceasing (adialeiptwv).
Late adverb for which see on 1:2 and for euxaristoumen see on 1:2.

The word of the message (logon akohv).

the word of} hearing, as in Sir. 42:1 and Hebrews 4:2 o logov thv akohv, the word marked by hearing (genitive case), the word which you heard. Here with tou teou (of God) added as a second descriptive genitive which Paul expands and justifies. {Ye received it so (paralabontev)

accepted or welcomed it (edexaste)

not as the word of men (ou logou antrwpwn),

but as the word of God (alla logon teou),

as it is in truth (katwv alhtwv estin).
This last clause is literally,

as it truly is}. Paul had not a doubt that he was proclaiming God's message. Should any preacher preach his doubts if he has any? God's message can be found and Paul found it. {Worketh in you (energeitai en umin).
Perhaps middle voice of energew (en, ergon, work) late verb, not in ancient Greek or LXX, but in papyri and late writers (Polybius, etc.) and in N.T. only by Paul and James. If it is passive, as Milligan thinks, it means "is set in operation," as Polybius has it. The idea then is that the word of God is set in operation in you that believe.
