1 Thessalonians 1:5

A “for our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction;”

Good tidings of salvation
The good news of our salvation and transformation
Did not come into existence by λόγος only

But also by δύναμαι in/by the Holy Spirit
With full assurance/conviction/fulfillment

B “just as you know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake.”

Transformed for the sake of more people being transformed.

Creation
Brought proof
Being transformed
‎By more than word
Condition
Power from on High
Prompted by the Holy Spirit
‎Perspective towards Heavenly
Cause
Sureness
Salvation of others
‎Succession

constantly bearing in mind your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the presence of our God and Father.
1 thess 1:3

The proof of transformation is works produced by faith, labor prompted by love and endurance brought on by hope in Christ.

Transformation starts with the opening of the heart to receive the Word of God.
The indwelling of the Holy Spirit produces works and labor. The hope in His return.
