Take the stone away

When Jesus arrived at the tomb of Lazarus, he gave the instruction to remove the stone that closed the entrance to the tomb. The stone was an obstacle in the way of the miracle of raising Lazarus from the dead. It blocked the way between the darkness and coldness of death and the miracle of life that Jesus was about to perform. What are the stones that entomb us in darkness? What are the obstacles that prevent us from coming out into life?
